Up to Chopwell Woods along the Derwent path and then around there as much as you like.

Hadrian's Wall 2014

I ran last year's with an OMM Last Drop and a front chest pouch - in retrospect far too much storage and it only encouraged me to pack badly. Not running it this year, but now using a Nathan Vaporwrap for ultras - can highly recommend it. The Ultimate Direction Signature Series are fab too, depends on whether you want a bladder or bottles, I guess - I tried both and thought the Nathan fit me better.

I had a touch of hypothermia on The Wall - got into the last checkpoint, realised I was really cold and couldn't stop chattering teeth, also felt quite confused. Luckily they had a space heater so I ate something, stuck myself in front of it for a while and stuck on a thicker top for the last bit. Gave me a fright, and probably the biggest wake-up I've had in terms of looking after yourself.

The Kamleika tops are great - I've got a jacket and it just plain does the job. Not the lightest or smallest, but if I wanted the surety of knowing I'd be weatherproof that's what I'd take.

I picked up an Inov-8 thin quilted pull-on (Thermoshell?) over the summer - I've used it a bit, though I think it comes into it's own in the proper cold - very impressed with it.

Yup, signed up for G2E. Now also gazing at Kintyre Way, but wondering if I'm hardcore enough...

http://www.resoluteevents.co.uk/G2E.html if anyone is looking for the site. I'm in no way connected to the event or the organisers, just in case anyone was wondering. I did the Jedburgh Ultra at the weekend and realised it's part of the Scottish Ultra Marathon Series (SUMS), so I started looking at the other events...

55 miles - some of the details (like the price) took a little bit of finding. Mostly flatish other than the canal lift at Falkirk (which would be nice to see).

I'm looking at this as it looks canny, but wondered if anyone had done it before and had any strong impressions - followed the first half on the map and it looks like it might be quite built up?

Sorry I missed your comment TDA - yes, I was there, it was grand. I think I met you at the road crossing just before Lilliardsedge - I was part of a small group of people who'd gone made a slight detour at Ancrum and somehow got behind you.
